Fortnite theory: Season 4 will close Chapter 2

Will Thor and Galactus return Fortnite players to the Chapter 1 map at the end of Season 4.

Published

Fortnite Season 4 is set to release Thursday, August 27. Epic have confirmed that the next season will feature a strong Marvel theme, which seems to mirror the theme of Chapter 1 Season 4 – only with licensed superheroes.

The initial impression of many fans was that Epic abandoned the plot of Fortnite in favor of a marketing campaign. This narrative made it all the way to Epic Games Creative Director, Donald Mustard. He assured fans that this wasn’t the case and that the Marvel crossover would heavily tie into the Fortnite lore.

Epic and Marvel appear to be collaborating on a comic book that will usher-in Season 4. At the time of writing, we know that Galactus is heading to the Fortnite map with the intention of devouring the world. Thor has arrived in time to warn the inhabitants, but he’s losing his memory in the process.

From what we heard in the Visitor Recordings, this seems to be a symptom of life on the BR island. “When I hear this again, will it help me remember? Or will I be just as muted as the others?”

Before the most recent pages released, YouTuber and Twitch streamer Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan released a theory video. In the video, he proposes the idea that Fortnite Season 4 will be the final – or second-to-last – season of Chapter 2. These recent developments only add credibility to this theory.

The idea behind this theory is clear once you read through the comic book pages in Fortnite. Galactus is coming to devour the world. Thor doesn’t seem to be here to save the world, but rather to warn the inhabitants. All signs point to Thor evacuating the island in time for Galactus to consume the Chapter 2 map.

The timing of this being the end of Chapter 2 checks out as well. We’ve only had four seasons, but the first two seasons were nearly twice as long as normal Fortnite seasons. In essence, it’s as if we’ve been through five seasons rather than three, as Sypher states in his video. The rumored end date for Season 4 also puts it about a year from the end of Chapter 1.

Will we transport to an entirely new map? Will Thor send us back to the Chapter 1 map? We have no idea. Right now, though, this seems like the most realistic theory for the end of Fortnite Season 4 – that it will be the last season of Chapter 2.

Most fans hope that we’ll return to the old map at some point, and the presence of these massive, cosmic Marvel characters makes this reality seem to be coming sooner rather than later. We’ll have to wait a couple of months before finding out, of course.

How to earn the free Fortnite Crew emote in Season 5

Epic Games are offering players who sign up for the Fortnite Crew membership a free, exclusive emote for a limited time.

Monthly Crew Pack leaked image

Epic Games is offering players a free emote to go with their Fortnite Crew membership in Fortnite Season 5.

The Fortnite Crew membership is an interesting idea. Players can sign up for the system for $11.99 per month. In return, they receive the Battle Pass, an exclusive cosmetic set, and 1,000 V-Bucks to use as they please.

January 2021 was the second month of the Crew system, and it wasn’t without its speed bumps. Some players logged in on January 1 to see that their Green Arrow skin pack was nowhere to be found.

Even more players had to wait over 2 weeks to receive their V-Bucks for the month. The system is still new, but it’s clear that Epic have some polishing to do.

As a way to throw Fortnite Crew members a bone, Epic are offering a free “Members Only” emote to anyone who signs up for the Crew pack.

You need to sign up for a Fortnite Crew membership and log into Fortnite before February 15. This timing means that non-members can wait and see what the February cosmetic pack holds before committing.

The Crew membership, when it’s working, is a good deal for dedicated Fortnite players who want to get the most bang for their buck. An exclusive skin, pickaxe, back bling, and 1,000 V-Bucks is well worth the $11.99 price tag.

We’ll let you know when we learn more about the February Fortnite Crew pack. Until then, enjoy Season 5.

Fortnite Season 5 is offering players a plethora of ways to earn XP and rank up through the Battle Pass. The most recently-added XP-gathering method is through the XP Coins.

Ahead, we’ll give you a map of all the XP coin locations. We’ll make sure to update you as more XP Coins are added to the map.

Fortnite XP Coin locations

XP coins are scattered all across the map. You can find them from Catty Corner to Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s a map of all of the available XP Coins, so far.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, but there’s still about two months left. The holiday break extended the latest season, so there’s still plenty of time to make your way through the Battle Pass.

The Week 7 challenges are relatively straightforward, with most of them able to be completed without too much effort.

A couple of these challenges will have you searching the same area in Slurpy Swamp, so a favorable bus path in Team Rumble will allow you to complete them in one shot. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges

The good news in the Week 7 challenges is that all of them can be completed in Team Rumble. We have a separate article detailing the locations of Books in Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. You can find that here.

The Legendary challenge requires players to deal damage to opponents in Vehicles. This one is going to be a headache, as there’s no way to force another player to be inside of a car or boat when you shoot them.

Hopefully, you can get into a game of Team Rumble with like-minded enemies – sitting in Motorboats and trading shots with you. If not, it’s going to take some serious gaming to finish this one. Good luck!
